Tribute to Cat Stevens at Camden Opera House – Knox County VillageSoup
CAMDEN – Tom DiMenna sings Cat Stevens, a celebration of the album “Tea for the Tillerman”, will be the next SoundCheck concert at 7:30 pm on Friday November 12 at the Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St. The folk-rock revival show is sponsored by 40 Paper.
Portland singer-songwriter Tom DiMenna marks the 50th anniversary of Cat Stevens’ beloved album “Tea for the Tillerman” in this tribute, featuring his finger-picking melodies and a wink. eye devoted to Cat’s distinctive vocal phrasing. Jason Eckerson joins on guitar and bass.
DiMenna released an EP, “You Know Me, My Devil Says,” late last year. Most of his songs were written while working as a bartender in the non-profit One Longfellow Square music hall. DiMenna’s pre-Portland resume includes quarterback for a semi-pro Italian football team, scriptwriting, and pursuit of improvisation, which led to an Off-Broadway Fringe Festival as that ghost of Telly Savalas.
